Dutch company Lightyear is set to launch the world’s first solar car by the end of 2022. The maximum speed of the car is said to be 100 mph.
It will be a car capable of reaching 100 mph in just 10 seconds of starting the vehicle. Lightyear will release a total of 946 cars. The price of a car is around two crore rupees ($ 262,000).
Netherlands-based Solar EV startup Lightyear car maker has unveiled the world’s first stunning car, the Solar Car Lightyear 0. Six years after its invention, the solar car has been unveiled on the world stage.
On June 9, Lightyear 0 was released worldwide online premiere. At this premiere, the company showcased the final design of the car and its unique specifications and technical capabilities.
The world’s first solar car, introduced by the famous car manufacturer Lightyear, is the most fuel-efficient vehicle in the summer.
Launched on the roads at the end of this year (2022), the Lightyear 0 will have curved solar panels on the roof, hood and trunk of the car.
These solar panels will top up the electric battery while driving. The company has announced that the world’s first solar car will be delivered to Europe in November this year.
Lex Hoefsloot, CEO and co-founder of the automotive company, says of the Solar cars:
“Electric cars are a step in the right direction in the production of timely cars, but they are still largely dependent on fossil fuel energy.
An environmentally friendly vehicle can be used by using a new source of sun in transport vehicles. Solar cars reduce fuel costs. ”
The interior of the vehicle is designed to be eco-friendly, with hand rests made from plant-based leather, fabrics made from recycled PET bottles and standard rebuilt canes.
The battery of the world’s first solar car is different. Powertrain is the most efficient battery in the world. The car has an aerodynamic shape and the four in-wheel motors are powered by a small battery. .
“The whole car is lighter, and you get into this positive feedback cycle, where everything becomes lighter. That’s why we were able to build the car at 1,575 kilograms. If you look at other cars that offer a similar range, they are all about 40% heavier,” Lex Hoefsloot said.
The maximum speed of the car is only 100 mph, LightYear will release a total of 946 cars. The price of a car is around two crore rupees ($ 262,000).
